Dump cranberry sauce into a bowl and give it a good mash (this is a great step for little helpers). You just want to break it up a bit so it's not so can-shaped.
Pour mashed cranberry sauce into baking pan and spread it about evenly. Do the same for the cake batter, right over top of the cranberry sauce.
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 50 minutes (until a toothpick comes out clean). Place on a cooling rack.
While the cake is taking a breather, make the glaze by combining milk, butter, and vanilla in a bowl or small cup. Pour slowly into the sugar, stirring constantly until desired consistency is reached. I like mine thick, but maybe you like a more drizzly drizzle? Now find your gaudiest of cake platters and ready it for a grand job. (i.e. rinse off the dust).
Now, after loosening the edges of your cake with a knife, place the cake platter (or plate!) on top of the cake and do a little flippity floppity bippity boppity.
Once things are all set right (I'll give you a minute...) get all artsy dartsy and drizzle your shizzle. Er, I mean. Drizzle the vanilla sugar icing neatly (hah!) over top of the cake.
